As a fitting followup to the impressive display of work unveiled during Art Basel Week with Joshua Liner Gallery (covered), Kris Kuski has also just provided his fans the first wide-arcing examination of his work to date. Published by BeinART, the well-produced hardcover publication serves as a chronicling of the mixed-media artist’s unique vision, captured within 144-pages of wonderfully crisp photographs of his sculptural works, a plethora of detail shots that magnify the intricate detail achieved, and a scattering of text that further shines light […]

Releases: José Parlá – “Walls, Diaries, and Paintings” Book

Brooklyn-based artist José Parlá, who stopped the show with one of his magnificent street-inspired calligraphic works at OHWOW’s It Ain’t Fair exhibit (covered) during Art Basel Week last month, will be unveiling a new publication next month, entitled Walls, Diaries, and Paintings.

Merry Christmas from Marilyn Minter

Marilyn Minter, who we just saw at the opening of the Youtube Biennial at the Guggenheim where she was a judge, recently released a 58 x 48 inch vinyl diecut Christmas tree wall-sticker.  The Merry Merry Tree kit features some of Minter’s own eclectic collection of shiny ornaments with the topping star using some of her more classic photo-imagery (seen in detail after the jump). The tree and star are priced at $125 or only the star for $10 all available here with some of […]

Releases/Highlights: Tauba Auerbach “[2,3]” Pop-Up Book & MOVE! Performance

A little over a month ago at the NY Book Fair, organized by the largest non-profit dedicated to publications made by artists Printed Matter, Tauba Auerbach unveiled the beginnings of an intriguing and gravity defying pop-up book. On the heels of her powerful solo exhibition, The W Axis (covered), as well as a blowout result at a recent charity auction where one of her much sought after Fold paintings reportedly sold for nearly 10x the estimate, the scalding hot contemporary artist has condensed her methodical […]

Releases: “Murakami Versailles” Book

Much like Jeff Koons, who in 2008 was the first artist granted the honor of  exhibiting in the royal French chateau, a book is set to release chronicling Takashi Murakami’s recent efforts to reinvent the home decor of the historic Palace of Versailles (covered). Ranking as the 39th most powerful art figure by Art Review, the Japanese pop art sensation had an impressive year, continuing his partnership Louis Vuitton, exhibiting with Gagosian in Rome, participating in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and even “collaborating” with […]

Releases: “MAYDAY: The Art of Shepard Fairey” Book

Following in a long line of elegantly produced Shepard Fairey exhibition catalogs, a new publication has just been unveiled to honor his historic creative outpouring that kicked off this past summer’s art season. While landmark in it’s own right as a result of the scope and scale of the effort, the instantly iconic show also served as an emphatic going out party for Deitch Projects, the game-changing gallery in a large part responsible for taking street art out of the shadows and into the limelight. […]

Releases: KAWS x Robert Lazzarini – “Distorted Companions”

Wow, what a stunning collaboration between Robert Lazzarini, well known for his distorted sculptures, and KAWS in what we like to call the “Distorted Companions”. Lazzarini, who you may remember recently exhibited his twisted brass knuckles alongside KAWS’ work at the It Ain’t Fair exhibition (covered) by OHWOW during Art Basel Week, is a fellow Brookylnite and seems to be a natural partner for the re-engineering of the iconic figure on its 10th anniversary. Early word (which may or may not be accurate) on these […]

Videos: Scott Campbell x Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2011 Collection

The relationship between Louis Vuitton and Scott Campbell must’ve started off on the right foot thanks to their collaboration earlier this year (covered), as the multi-faceted artist now has the distinguished honor of designing an entire line for the pervasive brand. Following in the foot steps of such art luminaries as Takashi Murakami to have worked closely with the trend setting product house, Campbell who is known for his accomplished abilities with the pen and the tattoo gun, as well as for thinking outside the […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Kate Moss Portfolio @ Danzinger Projects

Images of Kate Moss are a welcome sight anywhere they spring up. Such was the case with the 11 photographs on display at the Danzinger Projects (previewed) booth during PULSE Miami. Forming a limited edition portfolio of hand picked shots from throughout her storied 20+ year career, the iconic images provided a welcome respite from the sometimes overwhelming barrage of artwork more synonymous with Art Basel Week. With work from such venerable photographers as Chuck Close, Juergen Tell, and Annie Leibovitz, and packaging designed by […]
